I am a travel enthusiast. And so after my marriage, I was planning my honeymoon trip. For Indians, the hot-favourite honeymoon destinations are the blue beaches of Bali and Maldives. So I searched packages for Bali, Maldives and being a mountain-lover, I checked for Darjeeling too and all the operators showed different itineraries and packages. But Maldives was way out of my budget (around 2 lac) and Bali for around 1.5 lac. So I was planning to settle for Darjeeling with 80,000/-.
And I was almost convinced of finalising North-East when I stumbled upon a travel blog and then it struck me, why not look out and plan a package on my own!!
That is exactly what I did and thanks to travel bloggers, I got the whole deal in my budget with added luxury! And this is an attempt to help all those couples who are settling for less when they can book a whole trip on their own…
I started checking flight prices and hotel deals in Bali. After checking everything I got an idea that I can book on my own within 90,000/-
Every Gujju has an innate ability to save as much money as we can. Be it buying a home or planning a trip. I almost saved 50,000 this way and so after giving a pat on my back, I set forth with the bookings.
I am from Junagadh, Gujarat and so I checked flight from Ahmedabad to Bali on Goibigo and MakeMyTrip. There were a lot of different price ranges. I was looking for a flight in June.
I booked my flight at INR 41,997 (Originally priced at INR 45,997 and got INR 4000 cashback, Ahmedabad to Bali in INR 16526 and Bali to Ahmedabad in INR 25471) with the return for two people. Yeah you read is right, I booked my flights only 1 month prior to the travel date and I got an amazing deal. I want you to know that before booking anything, you should check and compare everything (Hotels and Flights).
